My first attempt creating something with eggplant turned out to be a smashing success if I do say so myself 😉
1 tbsp. water
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs/ Panko
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. pesto
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. preferred salty seasoning
4 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Peel the eggplant and cut into 1/4 inch slices.
I let the slices sit on paper towel for a few minutes to sweat them before continuing on with the next steps.
Whisk the egg and water together.
In a separate bowl mix the bread crumbs and seasonings.Dip the eggplant slices generously in the egg before coating them with the crumb mixture.
Once the slices are on the pan, drizzle the remaining oil on top and bake for 15 minutes.
Flip the slices and bake for another 15 minutes.
We ate ours with a tomato cheese sauce and pasta… but I think it could go well as a side dish for many things 😊
Let me know how it turns out, enjoy!🍽
